Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit Heaps Up Jesus Messiah Rejecter
He exposes about how Barrie Schwortz, Shroud of Turin expert and "knight" of the Pope is invited to the latest Missler and pals, Pikes Peak Prophecy Conference.
Ah that Shroud of Turin nonsense, it's like the Tilma of Guadalupe just another one of Rome's phony relics!
Why are so called evangelicals promoting a relic of the Popes?
From LA Muzarulli's blog..
"I wept when I first saw the face, in 1980, as I believe it is really him. I don’t worship the image, and it doesn’t add to my salvation. It does, however, leave me speechless as I have a tangible link to events that happened almost 2000 years ago, a cosmic picture, if you will of the event that Christians call the resurrection, made, I believe by God himself, as the lifeless body dematerialized in millions of points of light. Is the man on the Shroud Jesus? That’s up to you to decide for yourself. As for me, the Shroud of Turin is God’s Calling Card."This allowed me a big sigh....[by the way what is that lifeless body dematerialized stuff all about?]
Because this thing is not a "picture" of Jesus whatsoever. Besides the obvious breaking of the second commandment, it's all wrong. The OT tells us that long hair is a shame unto a man, and they expect Jesus to have long hair? It's just another phony rendition of the Catholic "jesus".
You all may think I am strange with this one, but I knew the Shroud of Turin was phony within the same year I came out of the Catholic church. Take a look at this face... Long hair anorexic like an inverse of the Catholic "hippie" "jesus:....
Mt 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before.
I didn't need the scientists to tell me it was phony...
Turin Shroud confirmed as fake
I always thought a bas relief method came up with this thing...
"A scientist then laid out a damp linen sheet over the bas-relief and let it dry, so that the thin cloth was moulded onto the face. Using cotton wool, he then carefully dabbed ferric oxide, mixed with gelatine, onto the cloth to make blood-like marks. When the cloth was turned inside-out, the reversed marks resulted in the famous image of the crucified Christ.
Gelatine, an animal by-product rich in collagen, was frequently used by Middle Age painters as a fixative to bind pigments to canvas or wood. The imprinted image turned out to be wash-resistant, impervious to temperatures of 250 C (482 F) and was undamaged by exposure to a range of harsh chemicals, including bisulphite which, without the help of the gelatine, would normally have degraded ferric oxide to the compound ferrous oxide."
and earlier in the article...
"In 1988, scientists carried out carbon-14 dating of the delicate linen cloth and concluded that the material was made some time between 1260 and 1390. Their study prompted the then archbishop of Turin, where the Shroud is stored, to admit that the garment was a hoax. But the debate sharply revived in January this year."
It doesn't match scripture....Jesus was not wrapped in one piece of cloth...
John 20 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself
So why are all these evangelicals promoting that thing?
Shouldn't they know better?
